 And the song Sexy Back from Justin Timberlake
Other than getting that song stuck in my head for days, I couldn’t think of anything to write. I was going to go political with infect, which is so not me, until I realized how much Timberlake’s song had infected my brain. I couldn’t stop singing it. I got my son singing it now. Finally, I came up with this, but I still think it needs retooling and reworking, but it’s down to the wire now so I thought I’d put it out there anyhow.

On the dance floor,

Music pumping,

Body rolling

Strobe light flashing

All over me,

Over there at the bar

I see

Him staring at my legs

My heart beats

In time with the music

130 beats per minute

Find me in it

I came to dance

I feel it:

The music, the vibe

My body

The bass

One, two, step

Shake it off

He swaggers toward the floor

Music pumping

Body rolling

Strobe light flashing

All over me

I feel him at my back

Smell his sex

Steaming off his skin

At my back

I came to dance

I feel it:

The music, the vibe

My body

The bass

One, two, step

Back off

I came for me

To loose the shackles

And melt into the sounds

To let the music infect me

With its melody,

The vibrations set me free;

Be done with it

I will not make that mistake


I came to dance

  1. ooh hot stuff!! You probably still have the energy to dance all night while I’m more in bed at 9pm with a cup of cocoa. I am doing the Trifecta writing challenge. you have infected me 😉

    • oh,you know I fall asleep at 8 while reading to my son! Those days are long behind me. Welcome to trifecta. I started about 3 weeks ago. It’s a nice place

  2. As someone who loves to dance, I enjoyed this. I like “I will not make that mistake tonight” and her focus on the dance floor and her own enjoyment and not the guy.

  3. Thanks for all the comments everyone. I am so glad it worked and you could feel the beat. I am so rhythmically challenged! and have 2 left feet!
    I wasn’t sure it worked how I wanted it to.

  4. JT has a way of sneaking into your psyche, huh? Glad you linked it up with us… it’s got a little gritty R&B feel, lyrics perhaps?
